Mallett is in the best situation he could ever be, if you put aside the whole "not getting paid first round money" thing. But he is on a team that will keep whatever character issues he has in check, and will be given time to develop into a good QB. Sadly, I don't think this would have been possible here or many of the QB-starved teams that could've drafted him last April.

Not necessarily, they did have one KO for a TD which went 103 Hess last night. I can't remember which team... The Patriots? I not sure. And yes it could have been against scrubs but its a possibility with the right blocking. Unfortunately we never have the perfect blocking, not sure if it's the scheme or the players not doing their jobs.

Ok, one out of how many kicks?

The new rule definitely de-emphasizes the role of a kick returner. And for a guy like Banks that offers little at any other position, I don't see how you can say he's not on the bubble.

Janikowski was booting them out of the endzone, lol

I sure hope not. I didn't see much of the games last night but I assume there was a lot of touchbacks? I still think they've got to find a way to keep Banks.

It was the Chargers (Bryan Walters), and it was against the Seahawks.

That's pretty much what I'm sayin. He was playing in his first preseason game, two weeks after starting to practice, he's probably at least a couple years of riding the bench away before he might even be in the discussion as a decent backup qb, I honestly wouldn't know why people would expect more than he did. He looked good on that one play where he escaped the pressure in the red zone, but then he threw the pick to Jarrad Page which made everyone completely forget about how he was able to move around in the pocket out there lol.

I'd REALLY love to hate his ass.......but he seems like a really good dude.

It all depends on if the team wants to find a way to use him. Last year they used him for screens and towards the end of the season as a WR. I think he proved he fits in for more then one roll. Plus he's available if needed as a scat back. But I do agree with you that he needs to show the coach's his value on this team. I too could see him getting cut because someone else on the team returns punts and kicks just as well with out the speed.

I just think it would be stupid to cut him. When playing a team like Philly we could possibly use a speed package with Moss, Austin, Paul or Robertson, and Banks as WR's. As long as the can provide the protection then other teams will have a hard time covering due to all the speed on the field.

I watched it last night and he started out rather getto then stopped took a deep breath and restarted what he was trying to say. I think it was one of those moments when he was answering the question then realized he was on tv and restarted in order to not sound uneducated.
